YOU can’t drive down Aickin Road without noticing the cute faces of Jack the dog and Mika the cat high above Whangamata Animal Hospital.

Owner, operator and veterinarian Dr Stefan Walther runs the newly established clinic with loads of experience behind him andwith the motto pets are family too!

Stefan trained and worked in the UK and has worked all over the world. For 10 years he worked in Bermuda before moving to New Zealandwith his family in 2004. In Bermuda Stefan attended to average domestic pets as well as exotic animals from the Bermuda Aquarium and Zoo. He had the opportunity to work extensively with turtles, horses, flamingos, lemurs, sloths and even dolphins.
Pictures of his amazing patients can be seen in his consulting room.

Bermuda was where Stefan met hiswife, Melissa after treating her cat Rusty. Stefan and Melissa married in Bermuda, their son Drake was born in Bermuda and their daughter Charlizewas born a Kiwi in 2005.

The pair split the tasks of running the hospital, Stefan does all of the medical and pet care while Melissa takes care of accounts and the computer system.

On staff is Stephanie Dowling, the friendly and knowledgeable veterinary nurse and puppy preschool teacher. Steph is a natural with animals—she happens to have two dogs, two cats, a rabbit and a guinea pig. ‘‘We endeavour to provide the best health care to our patients with compassion and enthusiasm.
